Share this article


A Dublin charity that supports children with congenital heart defects is the first square to be revealed on the new Dublin-themed Monopoly board.

It's after 98FM New revealed the makers of the classic board game were looking for a charity to feature on its new-look board in time for Christmas.

The charity was founded in 1990 and is based on North Brunswick Street.

CEO Margaret Rogers says they're absolutely thrilled.

"A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us and to Winning Moves UK for this wonderful opportunity. It's certainly great that we are on a 'priceless' space - we feel honoured with all the support we get. Play is so important in the lives of all children and MONOPOLY has played a huge part, for many decades, in creating so many great memories for families."

Volunteer Aoife O'Driscoll has been in touch with 98FM about the good news.

"We heard about this opportunity from you guys ! So thank you! There is great excitement in their little office this morning!"

The Irish editition of Monopoly was discontinued in 2011 and earlier this year Hasbro revealed it was inviting suggestions as to what Dublin landmarks should feature on the new board.

So far we know the Ha'Penny Bridge, Temple Bar, Phoenix Park and the Molly Malone Statue will be given a square, with more to be revealed in the coming months.
